The enduring legacy of disaster capitalism in its many forms

The stubbornness of disaster capitalism is legendary.

I recently spoke to the New York-based podcast series News Beat on the war in Afghanistan and how many people made a fortune during the 20-year US occupation.

The show has done a follow-up episode just on disaster capitalism and in it I discuss mining, Blackwater founder Erik Prince, rare earths, Haiti etc.
